Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
When you say where do you stand, in relation to what specially, the charges?
Are the Police still investigating? Have you been charged at all please?
I have not been charged, neither has she
Police are still investigating, but as I mentioned, I have provided police with evidence to clear me
Allegations against me , are false imprisonment and threat to kill
Her only evidence is her statement
Yes ok. What is it you want to ask me about this so I can help?
My question is , the liklihood of me , being charged,
And likehold of her being charged
I have no criminal history what so evere
My answer will be qualified because as you can imagine I have not seen any of the evidence.
I have a important and sensitive job
The matter will go before a CPS lawyer who will decide a two stage test:
1) Is there a realistic prospect of a conviction
2) is it in the public interest
The highest hurdle is the conviction one. They would have to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the offences took place
If they can not then there will not be a realistic prospect of conviction.
Yes I understand, the first stage is the evidential stage
I can't see how
But based on what you have said given the fact you have witnesses and were not placed at the scene, then I do not think it would pass that
Of course giving this is domestic violence the police have a duty to investigate.
I can't see any evidence against me
Imagine for one second what she said was true, did not charge and you killed her - it would be in the papers.
But given that you have evidence to show you were elsewhere then I would not think you would be charged.
I hope this gives you some sort of weight off your mind
As for her being charged, given there are multiple witnesses I think it is certainly possible.
What about her being charged
Obviously I do not have the benefit of the evidence, but based on what you have said, I think that is entirely possible.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Also , with regards ***** ***** to kill, can cos charge just based on her statement
Yes it can be.
Yes it is possible.
For example with DV assaults it is usually one persons word against another
But the threat to kill is tied to the false imprisonment allegation, hence loss of her credability
Yes I understand. Your question was can it be charged based on a statement, the answer is yes
But you have evidence to suggest you were elsewhere
Too much evidence, she was also driving my car daily, during alleged time
Indeed. As I said I do not think you are likely to be charged based on your evidence.
And had full access to her mobile, she could have easily called police at any time
Would the police have checked her phone
The Police can. I can't say whether they did
Of thank you, ***** ***** final question please
The lottery numbers tonight will be: 2, 5, 14, 23, 32, 43
She was held in custody for 42 hours, is there a significance to that
It shows the Police have many questions
Can I clarify anything else for you today?
One very final question, my mother and sister gave witness against her, is that valid in court, given the family embers?n
Police did not question them about these allegations against me
Yes that would be valid evidence.
And that is something the CPS will consider.
The Police should consider taking statements if it supports your case.
But the Police or CPS may be satisfied regarding any charging decision without that.
But assuming it did go to Court your family members could give evidence.
Does that help?
Very much , thank you
